Barossa Shiraz Awarded Two Coveted International Gold Medals

Discover all about Nick Badrice’s award-winning Krondorf Wines from the SA’s own, Barossa Valley.

Nick Badrice, winemaker at Krondorf Wines in Barossa Valley, has all the reason to raise a glass of his award-winning Symmetry Shiraz.

In May, the Krondorf Symmetry Barossa Shiraz 2014 won a Gold Medal in Syrah du Monde, a competition to find the Best Shiraz/Syrah in the World, while the Krondorf Symmetry Barossa Shiraz 2013 was awarded a Gold Medal in the International Wine Challenge (IWC) in London.

“Every year, we put aside a selection of the finest barrels of Shiraz and Chardonnay, and reserve them for the Symmetry Range. The result is a wine that is perfectly balanced,” explained Badrice of the wine’s success.
The Krondorf Symmetry Barossa Shiraz vintage 2013 has now won ten Gold Medals in a range of shows, including the Adelaide Wine Show, Royal Sydney Wine Show and Barossa Valley Wine show*.

Born and raised in the Barossa, Badrice has a philosophy of creating wines with character and individuality, but which proudly speak of their regional home.

The Krondorf name has a rich history, with the original winery (initially named ‘Glenview’) founded in the mid-1800s.

The brand has in the last four decades scooped up over 300 wine show medals, including Australia’s most coveted red wine award, The Jimmy Watson Trophy.

“There’s an inherent responsibility in respecting and building on Krondorf’s history and we are doing this by continually developing our old vine resources, small batch winemaking and showcasing regional style,” said Badrice.

Badrice’s award-winning Shiraz is sold exclusively through Cellarmasters, and is according to Cellarmasters General Manager a customer favourite.

“Our customers love the Krondorf Shiraz because it has complex flavours with intense and fragrant berry aromas and a hint of spicy vanillin oak. We work with some of the most talented winemakers in Australia because we want to offer our customers the best wines at the best prices,” said Ben Copeman-Hill, General Manager for Cellarmasters.

The International Wine Challenge (IWC) is considered one of the world’s finest and most
meticulously judged wine competition which assesses every wine blind and judges each for its faithfulness to style, region and vintage. Throughout the rigorous judging processes, each medal- winning wine is tasted on three separate occasions by at least 10 different judges and awards include medals (Trophy, Gold, Silver, Bronze) and Commended and Great Value awards.
